Given how silly a lot of my own '90s figures look these days, I decided I would get over my aversion to the various ST lines and have have picked up a figure from Playmates late 1990's lines - the Tribble-themed version DS9's Captain Benjamin Sisko. There was a regular version as well, but how could I say no to the little Tribble accessories, right?
I was actually very impressed with the packaging on this one - there was very little waste, and the figure was fairly easy to free from the packaging, as he was only attached to the backing with two ties. Given that some figures of this age have dozens of taped-over ties, that was a nice surprise.

He can even do the splits!
|Always stretch before taking your Tribbles for a walk...|

Figures from "collectible" lines like those from Hot Toys or Sideshow tower over him:
|In between Hot Toys' Wolverine and Sideshow Toys' Krycek|
|Between DC Direct's The Drummer and ToyBiz's Nightcrawler|
|Between Adam Jensen and Commander Shepard|
|From this angle he's almost smirking, isn't he?|
